25 million copies sold - that's just crazy! Bear in mind, this number only reflects the Java version, which was released in full back in the distant past of 2011. This 25 million figure only scratches the surface of the massive number of total sales - revealed last year to be over 100 million total copies - and is the oldest version of Minecraft in existence. Awesome!
Wondering if Minecraft still sells well? As of this writing, the desktop version alone has sold over 9,100 copies in the last 24 hours.
Pocket Edition remains the strong leader in sales, revealing that it had sold over 40 million copies in a chart released in 2016. Something to be said for portable building and monster-hunting!
